Description

The Fight for Civil Rights: an all day ThinkIn

Every few decades, a struggle arises to define and enhance civil rights: the rights to which all citizens are, or should be, entitled. The last such period was the Sixties. Now, the fizzing convergence of identity politics, the technological revolution, anxiety about Big Data, the renewed vigour of LGBT campaigning, the #MeToo phenomenon and the tensions between religious and secular freedoms is generating another such age of vigorous debate. This whole day of Tortoise ThinkIns is a unique opportunity to explore this exciting and challenging terrain: make your voice heard.

Essential information – please read

Booking

When you book the ThinkIn on Eventbrite, you’ll receive an email confirmation. Bring this with you when you come.

Membership

The £65 ticket price includes annual digital membership of Tortoise. This gives you unlimited access to our daily edition via our app and website, 10 ThinkIn tickets per year and an e-book version of our Tortoise Quarterly.

When to arrive

Each ThinkIn has an arrival time and a start time. If you get here sometime in between those two, you’ll have plenty of time to check in, get a drink and mingle before the ThinkIn starts.

Where to find us

The day of ThinkIns takes place at Tortoise’s home, which is Fora, 16-19 Eastcastle Street, London, W1W 8DY. The nearest tubes are Oxford Circus, Tottenham Court Road and Goodge Street.

Security

Please bring your Eventbrite confirmation email and photo ID with you on the day. Unlike normal ThinkIns, we’ll have security and bag checks on the door for the Civil Rights Day.

Venue capacity and catering

If you’re doing several ThinkIns across the day, you’re welcome to hang around for food and drinks between ThinkIns. Please bear in mind our home isn’t big enough for hundreds of people so if it all gets a little cosy, the plan is to decamp to one of the many coffee shops or pubs close by…

Filming

We'll be filming the ThinkIns as usual so we can watch the discussions back and share the best bits with people who aren't able to make it in person.
